Ordering Information

In the quest to develop innovative solutions to combat microbial infections and antibiotic resistance, antimicrobial functional materials (AFMs) have emerged as a promising approach. Alpha Lifetech Inc., a provider of advanced materials, is dedicated to offering high-quality antimicrobial functional materials for researchers and industries working on the cutting edge of this field. Our antimicrobial functional materials are designed to provide effective and long-lasting protection against various pathogens, including bacteria, fungi, and viruses. Nanoparticles carrying features like high surface area, charge, ability to deliver a large number of antibiotics or other substance, size and shape, which make them an ideal antimicrobial weapon.


What are Antimicrobial Nanoparticles?


Antimicrobial nanoparticles are nano-sized particles (typically 1 to 100 nanometers), which show microbicidal activities against bacteria, fungi, and viruses. These nanoparticles can be made from various materials, including metals (e.g., silver, copper, and zinc), metal oxides (e.g., zinc oxide and titanium dioxide), and polymers. Due to their small size and high surface-to-volume ratio, nanoparticles possess unique physicochemical properties, contributing to their enhanced antimicrobial activities compared to their bulk counterparts.

Applications of Antimicrobial Nanoparticles



In the field of healthcare, antimicrobial nanoparticles can be used to develop coatings for medical devices, surgical instruments and implants to reduce the risk of hospital-acquired infections. They can also be incorporated into wound dressings and topical formulations to promote healing and prevent infections.

--Food Packaging

Antimicrobial nanoparticles can be incorporated into food packaging materials to inhibit the growth of spoilage microorganisms and extend the shelf life of products. Additionally, they can be used as sensors to detect the presence of pathogens in food products.

--Water Treatment

In water treatment, antimicrobial nanoparticles can be employed as filters or disinfectants to remove pathogens and improve water quality. They can also be used for developing self-cleaning surfaces and coatings for water treatment equipment.


Antimicrobial nanoparticles can be incorporated into fabrics to prevent odour-causing bacteria and improve hygiene.


In agriculture, antimicrobial nanoparticles can be used to develop antimicrobial coatings for seeds, increasing their resistance to pathogens and enhancing crop yields. They can also be incorporated into animal feed to improve animal health and reduce the risk of zoonotic diseases.
